Easiest Homemade Pizza

Jump to recipe

To be totally honest, I wasn’t planning on posting this pizza recipe because after all it is not my recipe, I didn’t even make the pizza sauce! I just open a jar of the fabulous HEB Marinara sauce. I was having a totally lazy, easy homemade kinda dinner. Then, It came out of the oven…absolutely beautiful and perfectly brown! You guys, it deserves all the attention I am about to give it. Sorry I ever doubt you my dear pie.

If there’s one thing you need to know about this pizza is… this crust is amazing! It is by far the easiest and fastest pizza crust I have ever made. The recipe is from the “Betty Crocker Cookbook”. My mother in law gave me this book right after I got married, I think she found it on a State sale or something like that. The book is from 1983. It must had been a great year for pizza crust.

I normally make one big pizza with one side cheese and the other side, well, whatever I have in hand to be totally honest. This time for the adult side of the pizza I did pepperoni, mushrooms, onions and sliced deli peppers. Here’s one little tip for you; I always drizzle my pizza with olive oil right before I put it in the oven, that way the sauce doesn’t dry out and it always comes out looking perfect.

I hope you give this pizza a try, you wont regret it!

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
